I’m a dreamer with thousands of random thoughts invading my mind. Most of them are travel related.
As Lennon said: “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” That’s why I’ve decided to write in this blog my escapism as well as things I have only learned because I lived them (and not just read them).
All experiences, and feelings written here are genuine. Photography included.

    Hello Darling,

    Today is an interesting day in Rio, more exactly in Lagoa – the well known Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon – we can enjoy the inauguration of the one of the highest X-mas Tree in the world, already traditional and, I guess, part of the Guinness book.

    Since more than a decade ago, Bradesco Seguros (the biggest Brazilian Health Insurance Company in Brazil), promotes a beautiful, extraordinary decoration for the Cariocas, enjoying a colored nice lights and , in the inauguration today, fireworks, music and good food and drinks in the kiosks around the Lagoon.

    Many years we don´t see that. Today, myself, Tia So and Julie-Julie will be there, in a friend’s apartment to enjoy.

    That would be a great opportunity to take some photos to exhibit here, in “Genuine Escapism to share with your friends. I will try to take some, as I don´t know if you will be able to be there.

    It starts the X-mas season here in Rio.

    Love you, :).
